Iran is waging war across the world and the West can't get its head out of its ass to confront it. These soldiers of allah are working directly for or with the knowledge of the Iranian government. On Monday, an Iranian bomb plot was foiled against Israeli diplomats in India and Georgia.
These are acts of war, just as the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in the streets of Sarajevo sparked the first world war. Iran is targeting ambassadors all over the world.
Back in October, the US uncovered and foiled a plan to bomb the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington, DC and the plot was backed by Iran’s Qods force, which has been killing Americans in Iraq.
Iran is exploiting a weak and compromised American president and an increasingly anti-Jewish fervor made worse by the growing takeover of whole countries by Islamic supremacists.
An Atlas reader, RV in Thailand, writes:
Some Thai politicians are putting out contrary messages in an obvious effort to mitigate the damage to tourism. Yesterday the Deputy Prime Minister said the incident wasn't terrorism, but criminal. Then today the two arrested terrorists are charged in a plot to bomb Israeli diplomats. You can't have it both ways, but it shows how political agendas and fear works in favour of the Muslim terrorists. The same thing happens when politicians claim that the thousands of murders in the South are not about religion, but are about politics only.
Thai police charged the two Iranians over an 'alleged' bomb plot against Israeli diplomats.
A third suspect was arrested in Malaysia after fleeing Thailand. he was getting on a flight to Iran. A fourth suspect, a female, is still on the run and left Thailand but we have at least one Thai police official claiming she was uninvolved and just the "girlfriend" of one of the suspects. How he makes that determination without arresting and questioning the woman is, in a word, absurd.
Here's the latest stories from the local papers. Remember we are 12 hours ahead of you in New York.

Third Iranian suspect arrested and detained in Malaysia
Malaysia on Wednesday detained an Iranian man suspected of involving in the series of bomb attacks in Bangkok's Klongtan district on Tuesday, a senior Thai security official said.
The arrest of Masoud Sedaghatzadeh was made about 3pm in Kuala Lumpur following the Thai side giving information and identity of the suspect.
The suspect was scheduled to board a flight from the Malaysian capital to Tehran, capital of Iran today. He initially booked a flight to leave for Tehran on February 25.
The three bomb attacks hit Klongtan, causing panic in the capital and leaving five bystanders injured.
At first the Thai side could not identify the suspect, allowing him to slip through Thai immigration on Tuesday and leave for Malaysia. Earlier Deputy police chief Pol Gen Pansiri Prapawat said Sedaghatzadeh, left Bangkok for Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday afternoon.
The was one of the four Iranian police linked to the explosions. The fourth Iranian still unaccounted for was a female Iranian who rented the house for the suspects.
The two others Iranians allegedly involved in the blasts are in police custody. One of them, Saeid Moradi, was badly injured after an explosive he intended to throw at police accidentally fell to the ground, while Mohammad Hazaei was later arrested at Suvarnabhumi Airport as he reportedly tried to escape to Malaysia.
The three rented a house in Soi Pridi Panomyong in the district about a month ago.A police search of the house uncovered a number of electronic devices that could be used to make explosives. It is currently believed that the three tried to flee from the rented house after the first bomb exploded inside. Sedaghatzadeh and Hazaei managed to flee but Moradi could not after a taxi refused to pick him up. He threw an explosive at the taxi and later at police.
Bangkok Post: Iranians 'targeted Israeli diplomats'
Published: 15/02/2012, Online news: Local News
Thai authorities charged two Iranians on Wednesday over an alleged bomb plot against Israeli diplomats, officials said, piling pressure on Teheran over accusations of a terror campaign against the Jewish state.
Authorities said they had laid criminal charges against two Iranian suspects accused of involvement in the three blasts in central Bangkok yesterday.
One of the men -- named as 28-year-old Saeid Morati -- lost both legs after he hurled an explosive device at police while fleeing an earlier blast at a house in the capital. The satchel containing the bomb, which he threw at a police vehicle, bounced off another vehicle and exploded at his feet. A second Iranian suspect, Mohammad Hazaei, was detained trying to board a flight out of the country at Suvarnabhumi airport. A third Iranian suspect is believed to have fled to Malaysia, officials said.
"These three Iranian men are an assassination team and their targets were Israeli diplomats including the ambassador," a senior Thai intelligence official told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.
"Their plan was to attach bombs to diplomats' cars."
Explosives and magnets were later found inside the partially destroyed house where the first explosion occurred, police said.
The two suspects were charged with causing an illegal explosion and attempting to kill police officers and members of the public, Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul told reporters.
"We cannot say yet if it's a terrorist act," he said, "but it's similar to the assassination attempt against a diplomat in India."
We cannot say A is A. What deadly delusion.
"It was not a terrorist act, it was just an act to demonstrate some insignificant symbol," said the former police captain.
He said the Immigration Bureau will conduct rigorous security checks on inbound travellers, especially suspicious-looking foreigners.
"I would like to tell everyone that Thai officials in all sectors are in control of the situation and there's nothing to be worried about," Mr Chalerm said. Thai intelligence officials were not at fault as the bomb suspects arrived in Thailand unarmed and had built their weapons inside the country, he said.
Israel accused Iran of orchestrating attacks on Israeli embassy staff in India and Georgia on Monday.
An Israeli diplomat in New Delhi suffered grave shrapnel wounds when a motorbike assailant attached a bomb to her car on Monday. Iran, which has already denied responsibility for the Delhi and Tbilisi incidents, said it had no link to the Bangkok blasts and blamed what it called "elements linked with the (Israeli) Zionist regime".
